HTML5 for Professional Writers: Introduction

Part I: Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML)

Intro Poster

We use Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) to tell an Internet Browser how to format and display a Webpage's content.

We also use HTML to label our content and attach meaning to the information we provide the Internet browser and the people who view our Websites.

Without HTML, our content would not have any formatting or structure.

Part I: Overview

This section of the textbook details how to format information intended for publication on the Internet. Specifically, students learn how to wrap text in html formatting tags and how to add semantic identifiers to their content.

  1. HTML Basics - Provides an introduction to HTML
  2. HTML Markup - Covers basic text formatting (Including: Headings, Paragraphs, Bold, and Italics)
